Marvel Studios has released a new featurette for Doctor Strange, which contains some new footage and concept art from the film. The featurette focuses on how Doctor Strange opens up the supernatural side of the Marvel Universe.
"There is the street level narratives of the Marvel Universe, there is the cosmic level, which Thor and Guardians and the Avengers have taken us to, but there is a very important supernatual side," says Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. "Doctor Strange is our perfect entry point into that, and the fact that Benedict Cumberbatch has agreed to do this role is huge for us."
From Marvel comes DOCTOR STRANGE, the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place – a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange – armed with newly acquired magical powers – is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence. Join Strange on his dangerous, mystifying, and totally mind-bending journey.
The cast features Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Star Into Darkness, The Imitation Game), Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave), Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes), Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man), Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale) and Tilda Swinton (The Grand Budapest Hotel).
The film is directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister) and written by Derrickson, Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), and C. Robert Cargill (Sinister).
Marvel's Doctor Strange is produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Charles Newirth, Stephen Broussard and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.
Marvel's Doctor Strange is set to be released in movie theaters on November 4, 2016.
